Vienna - Austrian police have charged 12 Germans with contravening anti-Nazi laws after some allegedly stuck stickers with swastikas on their beer coasters while others reportedly raised their arms in the Hitler salute.

A police statement says a waitress first reported the group on the weekend after finding the stickers at the table where they had been sitting at an inn near Salzburg.

Eight members of the group were subsequently seen by witnesses making the Hitler salute and yelling “Sieg Heil,” while being photographed by one of them.

The statement on the Salzburg police website Monday said the eight men and four women range in age from 18 to 65. They deny wrongdoing.
